A Tale Etched in Blood and Hard Black Pencil

About A Tale Etched in Blood and Hard Black Pencil

“A Tale Etched In Blood And Hard Black Pencil” - When a double murder reunites the classmates of St Elizabeth’s Primary School, scores are settled, debts repaid and alliances forged. Twenty years have passed but will those bonds still hold fast?

Following their 2017 sell-out run at Edinburgh Fringe and at “Bloody Scotland”, International Crime Writing Festival, Horsehead Theatre are touring Chris Brookmyre’s, “A Tale Etched In Blood And Hard Black Pencil” in 2019.

Award winning author Chris Brookmyre is a fan of our show, “an utterly brilliant adaptation” (fb livestream).

Warning – this play contains very strong language and scenes of a sexual nature. Suitable for age 14yrs+ only.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for A Tale Etched in Blood and Hard Black Pencil are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
